    Hello! I am planning a cruise for the summer of 2012 for me and a friend, but I will not be 21 by this time, am I allowed to sail alone?

    Hi, Taylor!

    A Disney Cruise Line vacation is a great trip for young adults, and you can sail without parents or guardians as long as you are over the age of 18. Of course, everything needs to be in your name -- including the bill.  Plus, you'll be personally responsible for signing the Cruise Contract and all other legally binding documents before sailing. (Sorry to sound so "bossy" -- but after all, I am a mom!)

    As young adults, you'll be able to enjoy all the Adult Amenities and Activities of a Disney cruise including:

    • Spa & Fitness: Treat yourself to spa experiences or salon services or enjoy an invigorating workout
    • Dining: Savor decadent cuisine amid breathtaking ocean views; Palo serves Northern Italian cuisine and Remy is French-inspired
    • Quiet Cove Pool: Relax in the adult pool where you can enjoy the cool water and ocean breezes in tranquil solitude
    • Nightclubs and Lounges: Enjoy live music, cabaret shows, sports, dance parties and karaoke at venues that cater exclusively to adults when the sun sets
    • Entertainment: Original Broadway-caliber Disney live shows are performed nightly in the Walt Disney Theatre, while first-run Disney Digital 3-D movies and classic films are screened in the Buena Vista Theatre.
    Of course, you have to be 21 to consume alcohol, and you'll want to be on the lookout in your daily Personal Navigator for those opportunities for 18-21 year olds to get together.  They usually offer several activities for young adults in order to get to know others on the ship who are your age.

    I hope this helps. Let me know if I can help you more once you have your cruise booked. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation.

    Bon voyage,
